Exotic Ingredients - A Crystal Heart One-shot


The Agents of Syn scour our world in search of Crystals, powerful relics of a bygone age which grant you super-powers should you dare to replace your own heart with them.

But not today.
Today... they cook.

The island of Manahawa is known for the yearly gumbo cooking competition, the winner of which gains exclusive access to an ancient city. This time, Syn has sent you as its representatives. The orders are simple: get the ingredients, cook the gumbo, win the competition.

That first part, though, might prove problematic, seeing as most ingredients will try to eat YOU.

This one-shot is great as a convention game, even for people who don't know Crystal Heart or Savage Worlds (The GM will need to know a bit of both, though). It's robust, easy to pace, wacky, has a plethora of memorable moments, and doesn't take itself seriously any more than minimally required.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
